Penn State AD: No Timetable For Beaver Stadium Renovation Design
Penn State AD Sandy Barbour said that "consideration for the design of the first phase of renovation at Beaver Stadium will get started soon," but she "couldn’t say what that initial step could be, or give a timetable," according to Joe Juliano of the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. Penn State "remains in the initial five-year segment of facilities improvement." One of the facilities is the Lasch Football Building, where Barbour said board approval has been received to "hire an architect" for close to $70M worth of renovations. Barbour also "mentioned improvements to the basketball practice facility that includes locker rooms, strength and conditioning, and sports medicine." Additionally, Barbour talked about "upgrades for soccer, tennis, aquatics, and field hockey facilities." Barbour said that more than $46M has been "raised this year for Penn State." Meanwhile, Barbour said that the school "would consider naming rights for athletic facilities but not for all of them" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 7/20).
